New Mexico FIRST LEGO League
2018-2019 FLL Jr. Challenge

"Exploring life on the moon"

What would it be like to live on the moon? The 2018/2019 FIRST® LEGO® League Jr. season will transport you to a place where you make the rules, learn to thrive and explore all that is around you. Discovery awaits when you join this MISSION MOONSM


Each year, FIRST LEGO League Jr. presents a new and exciting Challenge to ignite the creativity of children age 6 to 10. Each team of up to 6 children begins the exploration of this real-world theme with an exclusive LEGO® Education Inspire Model. Using this model as a starting point, they design a new model of their own with LEGO® elements. 

As they work, they learn basic engineering and programming skills with LEGO® Education WeDo 2.0 and apply those concepts to make their model move. Teams also document their work in an Engineering Notebook and share their journey through a team Show Me Poster. Throughout their experience, teams operate under the FIRST LEGO League Jr. Core Values, celebrating discovery, teamwork, and Gracious Professionalism®.


FLL Jr. Challenge
Core Values - Model - Show-Me-Poster
Each yearly challenge has three essential parts: Core Values, the LEGO Model, and the Show-Me-Poster.

The Model gets teams moving! Teams build a representation of what they are researching, based off the Challenge, and incorporate simple machines and movement into their creation.

The Show-Me Poster requires teams to illustrate their research and team journey. It provides an opportunity for them to share what they studied, what they learned, and to show information about the team and each team member.

All team activities are guided by the FLL Jr Core Values

The FIRST LEGO League Jr. season culminates with Expos where teams show off what they learned and created.
